So happy to find Dr. Batista! She really listens to you and knows her stuff. A+++
This was my first time seeing her and she made me feel comfortable.
My visit was timely and Dr. Batista was thorough and very nice. Also, the woman who drew my blood was awesome. I didn't feel a thing. :)
I am a healthcare provider myself. I empathize with the difficulty of adhering to overloaded clinic schedules - it's tough when you're not allotted much time per pt. That being said, I was very disappointed by how hurried Dr. Batista was during my new patient annual exam. After giving my medical history to an assistant who shrugged off any medical problems I mentioned that weren't on her pre-populated list, Dr. Batista came into the room with an agenda rather than asking why I had come or what I needed. Her agenda included completing my pap smear and telling me I needed to lose weight, after which she condescendingly started to explain that I likely have a certain diagnosis - one that I already know I have, and had not been allowed to add to my history when it was taken prior to her arrival. To be clear, I'm not offended that she addressed my weight. I quickly acknowledged that I understood the risks of obesity and how to combat it. She was aware I am a healthcare provider (in women's health). So it felt insulting that she spent much of her short time telling me things I'd already explained that I understood and was working on--to the degree that I felt I couldn't get a word in edgewise to address the main reasons I had made the appointment--I was new to town and needed referrals for continuation of care that I'd been getting before the move, and needed prescriptions for basic medications I'd run out of refills for during a period without insurance. As a provider who knows all too well the struggle to care well for each patient while also respecting the time of those in the waiting room, my default setting is to give other providers the benefit of the doubt. If I'd had to wait a long time, but had been asked what I needed and been listened to, this would be a very different review. But finding out what a patient needs is the most basic level of providing good care, and Dr. Batista seemed too busy to do even that. On top of the rest of it, the pelvic exam was not gentle. I am usually not bothered by a speculum exam, as long as basic comfort measures are taken. I know what those measures are, I employ them in my own practice (out of respect for my patients), and I am sorry to say I did not receive the same consideration during Dr. Batista's exam.
I don't really like going to the doctor's so I tend to put it off but she was a nice & informative and I didn't have to wait long. She gave me good recommendations based on what I told her and my medical history. I will definitely come back for my (now) annual checkup.
Excellent visit. Very attentive.
Very good visit.
